Okay, so I am new here so I do not know much about how this forum works yet. I have a few of questions.


1. Is there a way to see all articles (and only articles, I do not want their comments to also be search results) posted by a particular user.

2. Where would I post an alchemy related question (technically it is a alchemy book related question)? Would it go under the Magick category?

3. How can I edit my profile? I can not add pictures or an signature like the other users can. Do I have to wait a certain period of time or something of the sort.

4. I am trying to figure out the format of this forum; it looks like it is HTML. Am I able to use HTML to code my posts?

5. Is there a way to receive emails when a post I made has a reply/message?



I would appreciate any and all answers.

I don't know of any such way.

I would go for the Magick forum.

You are suppossed to have about 10 posts before you will be able to change your profile.

It is joomla, so html+php+css+mysql. And no, you cannot use html in your posts because of cross site scripting, but you can use bb codes.

I think it's a default for threads you have created or replied to. If you want to receive replies or new posts from some thread (or a board), then use a suited NOTIFY button.

Anyway, welcome here and have your welcome cow :cow:

Thank you Akenu.

Ah, okay; It was not a default setting for me to get emails from replies, but I have figured it out thanks to you. :D

I shall cherish that cow.

You can also go into each article section (there are only a few), and click the "Started By" at the top of that column.  This will sort the articles by who posted the thread.  A few articles have been posted by others and are marked in the article with different authorship (usually in the title with parentheses stating "by Person").  But for most of the articles the author corresponds to the Started By account.

Thank you, that will be extremely useful to me in the not-so-distant future.
